Comrade Igboayaka O Igboayaka is the Nationwide President of the Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC). On this interview with DAILY POST correspondent in Owerri on Thursday, he speaks on numerous points because it considerations the place of Ndi-igbo within the Nigerian political hemisphere.
He insists that Nigerians ought to vote for a a president of Igbo extraction.
Forward of the 2023 election, you have got continued to help a Nigerian president of Igbo extraction; what is definitely your motivation?
Nigeria president of Igbo extraction is a favor to all Nigerians, not even to Ndigbo. In actual fact, the deliverance of Nigeria from the shackles of unhealthy management is the approaching of an Igbo particular person in 2023 to manipulate Nigeria. An Igbo particular person is the one true Nigerian, that’s why they settle and have properties throughout Nigeria. Let me inform you, Fulani political oligarchy made a horrible mistake, they might have loved why God miraculously made Ndigbo to be a part of Nigeria. In the event that they fail to comprehend this favor in 2023, they wouldn’t have it once more. By the tip of 2022, there will probably be an indication if Ndigbo will probably be a part of Nigeria once more or they are going to have their very own separate nation.
What’s your response to the alleged marginalization of Ndigbo on this present administration?
Marginalization of Ndigbo didn’t begin with the latest or current administration, nevertheless it began from 1970 when not one of the 3rs of Gen. Gowon was applied in any a part of Igbo land. Ndigbo have confronted marginalization since 51 years (1970-2021)
How do you price management within the southeast? How effectively has the governors carried out and proven curiosity in the reason for Ndigbo?
There aren’t any leaders within the southeast. What we now have listed below are rulers and emperors, political maradonas who dribble the plenty with empty unimplemented guarantees. Management requires intelligence and knowledge, however we now have parochial set of political profiteers in southeast and as an alternative of fixing issues, they’re creating extra issues to Ndigbo. Take a look at what Southeast has turned to inside an area of 5 months. Insecurity has grow to be one of many traits and symbols of governance within the Southeast. Gov. Umahi who’s the Southeast Governors Discussion board lacks the capability and political-will to offer safety for less than 5 states, but we need to be a president of 36 states in 2023. This could solely occur in a Jungle Republic not even in Zoo Republic, as a result of in zoo there’s absolute orderliness. It’s humorous that Gov. Umahi couldn’t defend the lives and property of Ebonyians and sitting on the pool of blood of his individuals. Ebonyi that’s no more that seven million individuals, but insecurity is the order of the day, and Gov. Umahi desires to manipulate Nigeria with over 200 million individuals individuals.
For those who’re requested to counsel for the mum or dad physique of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, what’s going to you need the management of Amb. Obiozor to embark on?
They need to first determine with Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC). The success of each management is to work with the youths, not simply youths however progressive and visionary youths which Ohanaeze Youth Council represents. The council has already introduced 11 factors socio-political, cultural, and financial agenda to Amb. Prof. George Obiozor-led Ohanaeze Ndigbo. I strongly consider that Ohanaeze Ndigbo World Huge will henceforth have financial and political worth to Ndigbo beneath the erudite management of PG Amb. Prof. George Obiozor. For a few years, Ohanaeze Ndigbo had no iota of financial and political worth to Ndigbo, however Prof. George will change the narrative as a diplomatic reformer. We wish Ohanaeze Ndigbo that’s administratively organized that can symbolize the id of a customary authorities to Ndigbo, thereby give sense of management course to the entire Igbo race on the planet.
The troubles ensuing from the agitations of members of IPOB are unbecoming. What are you doing as a youth chief to carry the youths to the understanding and douse the present stress?
Poor management from Southeast leaders, marginalization, and injustice from the federal authorities led to agitation of Professional-Biafrans, MASSOB, Ipob, BIM, Jap Progressive Congress, MOBIN, Zionist, Biafra Nationwide Council, and so forth. Ndigbo wants Seaport, Worldwide Airport, Fashionable Railway, Industrial Fuel Pipeline, and Nationwide Electrical Grid. Nigerian structure is a fraud drafted to favor the Fulani individuals. Nigerian structure must be put in a trash bin for a brand new structure that has the face of Nigerians, not a structure that has the face of Fulani individuals. We’d like a restructuring that each one Igbo communities will probably be carved into one area, and regional authorities must be launched. With the extent of marginalization in opposition to Ndigbo right now, Nigerian authorities is sort of a mad man strolling on a skinny rope with formed blade.
What will probably be your message to the youths and what’s the Nigeria of your dream?
Youths is not going to go to battle whereas preventing themselves. If the elders brought on battle, the youths will pressure the elders to go and struggle the “battle.“ The youths should know that the Igbo nation belongs to them, so we should search their survival by each peaceable means. Any disaster or violent act impacts the youths greater than the elders, so I need to urge my individuals, regardless of the provocation, we are able to by no means decide weapons or every other weapon and go to battle in opposition to any ethnic nationalities in Nigeria once more. Youths are the true ambassadors and stakeholders of Igbo nation, subsequently, battle will not be a way to peace, however a peaceable method over each demand is a way to keep away from battle. Struggle is an instrument that interrupts the plans of the youths, subsequently, we should keep away from any violent plan and assault within the quest for self-determination.
